] >> jennifer: we're seeing it today there were a couple of super pacs that were created to keep chuck hagel from being confirmed as secretary of defense. what can you tell us about those. >> right. i mean these super pacs need something to do in the off season so to speak so they are weighing in on the nomination fight over senator chuck hagel, the president's nominee to be the defense secretary. and they are filling the airwaves with attack ads. there is this supposed pro lbgt group, but it is closely allied with a very deep red republican -- >> jennifer: that's what i thought. >> the details are sketchy but -- [overlapping speakers] >> jennifer: all right. andy -- and i hate to leave on this terribly depressive note. all i'm going to say is we want to purge you of reporting on dark money and hopefully if we get a supreme court composition that makes this up again, you can start reporting on other things. thank you, andy kroll. >> thank you. >> jennifer: and now to a story we're not leaving behind. in the 45 days since the tragedy at sandy hook elementary school no
confirmation hearings begin for defense secretary chuck hagel. he has secured support from several key senators but he's expected to face tough questioning from some republican opponents. and friday is expected to be hillary clinton's last day as secretary of state. the exact timing of her departure depends on hearings for john kerry who president obama tapped to replace her. that will do it for me. cnn newsroom continues right now with don lemon. have a great week. >>> hello, everyone. top of the hour. i'm don lemon. thank you so much for joining us. survivors of a nightclub fire in brazil are describing a nightmare scene. bodies all over the ground. firefighters trying to smash down the walls. terrified people being trampled. so many people dead. this nightclub was way overcrowded with dangerous pyrotechnics show going on inside. straight ahead is rafael romo. i want you to give us an updated count of the yash yults. >> this is way too preliminary yet. authorities still going over the scene to try to find out what happened there. some of the scenes we have received here at cnn world headquart
leaves friday. he will be coming in next monday. let's talk about chuck hagel and his confirmation hearing is on friday. you're just back from israel. what is the view there now? >> well, the israelis are very cautious about not saying anything. you know, there was this whole business about interfering about the netanyahu government. they're being hyper cautious about not saying anything. that said there's a lot of worry that he is you're going to distance or work to distance the united states from israel, and that's kind of right beneath the surface. i don't think it's true, but i think this is what the worry is. >> today the president called benjamin netanyahu to congratulate him on his majority. >> i'm looking forward to their joint interview on "60 minutes." that's going to be very cuddly, i'm sure. >> at the same time do you think that a john kerry state department is going to be more engaged in trying to push the israeli-palestinian track, or does everything now depend on what happens in egypt? >> this is very interesting. there's going to be a lot of pressure on president ob
chuck hagel from becoming our next secretary of defense. a new conservative group with anonymous donors called americans for a strong defense is running ads urging five democrats to vote against confirming hagel. another is called use your mandate. it is also new. it also has anonymous donors. it claims to be a liberal gay rights groups but buys its ad time through a republican firm. it has no web site and no physical address. it is, however using ads and mailers to call hagel anti-gay, anti-woman and anti-israel. this is part of a larger story in "the new york times" reporting at least five other groups are engaged in trying to block the president's choice. and the increase emergence of anonymous dollars and shady front groups is likely a result of citizens united. that 2010 decision that opened the floodgates to allow interested parties to inject endless outside money into our political campaign. >> i hate citizens united. >> me, too. npr reporting for the fives time today, google is posting its policies on what information it turns over to the government as part of an effort to win t
do have significant and serious questions for senator hagel. >> greta: and that will be coming up soon. >> yes, be coming before the armed services committee next week. >> greta: on the topic of the pentagon, secretary of defense, secretary of defense panetta has said that he's going to lift the ban on women in combat. what's your thought on that? >> i think that i respect that judgment. i would emphasize that there are certain specialties that require certain physical capabilities and i would not bar women, for example, seal teams, okay? i would not bar them from them if that's the decision, but i hope that they would have to measure up to the same physical standards because these seals are the best example, they're a small unit. they have to depend on each other and i'm not saying that women can't perform that way i just hope that we would keep the same standard requirements for screening and eligibility to be a member particularly if some of our elite military units. >> greta: and another log jam issue in washington. one of my colleagues confirmed that speaker boyner told a gro
'll be important to them when they deal, for instance with the hagel nomination. so it was score one for hillary and i think it was an attempt to build on that and move beyond it and talk about her legacy as a whole rather than that event. >> chris: i want to pick up on that, brit. because, during the hearing, what struck me was the republicans were tough on hillary, on benghazi and the democrats weren't. but, both sides kept on saying what a great secretary of state she had been and to praise her service. and here's some of the points that have been brought up, some of her accomplishments. she helped assemble the bombing campaign in libya, to topple muammar qaddafi. she helped assembly the coalition that imposed the toughest sanctions ever on iran. and, she established diplomatic ties with burma. question, brit: how do you rate hillary clinton's performance, record as our top diplomat. >> i think those examples you cited would add up to a case for her competence. they do not add up to a case for greatness, after all, the groundwork on burma had been done by the previous administration and, the
as secretary of state, chuck hagel as secretary of defense. consideration of our military strategy, our military spending, how we project american power as we complete a winding down of the war in afghanistan. it is really going to be the end of a post-9/11 period in national security policy, with the policy going for it from there still unsettled. guest: the will still be a focus on the issues of national security, what just happened in algeria, the issue of al qaeda not being as weak a forceful as president obama campaign on. i think republicans will point that out. if we lost american lives again last week. so what are we doing to keep al qaeda at bay? that will be part of the discussion during the confirmation hearings and certainly with mrs. clinton's appearance tomorrow. host: on the issue of foreign policy, what will be president obama's legacy? where will the focus in his second term? guest: looking back over the first term, he did wind down the war in iraq. he's in the process now of winding down the war in afghanistan. more broadly, i think this whole light footprint strategy,
tuesday. he will be sworn in as secretary of state next wednesday. chuck hagel to head up the funds and j-- head up defense and jack lew as secretary of state. >> i think chuck this is the steepest climb to his nomination. even before it was officially announced, a lot of members on both sides coming out. there were so many republican members, and he is a former senator republican member from nebraska. even members of his own party coming out in opposition. i think he will face a tough time. jack lew i think will also be of the cross hairs. he was sort of the president's point man when it came to the fiscal issues on capitol hill. we have seen through the spending fights that jack lew was the guy to rankle the different positions and bring everyone to some type of agreement and avert disaster. what is funny is the same goodwill he was able to build up through a lot of the past spending fight seems to be gone and a lot of his defenders on the other side of the aisle are coming out against him. yes, there is a lot of talk of a fresh start, but both sides are very much in campaign mode. that
. chuck hagel, that could be a little bit more. >> i think they will rough him up and be more lively than the john kerry hearings. in the end, the numbers. once senator schumer democrat said he answered all my questions, we know there have been meetings with others who have been critical and others with john mccain. he has done a lot of leg work and going into it, i don't think that mean that is it will be smooth sailing. they will be very tough questions and in the end they thought that he would be confirmed. >> how many republicans will vote to confirm him. we will find out. who is coming up on state of the union? >> dianne feinstein will talk about a number of things including the automatic weapons ban, but we will have on as well as former general hayden. we wanted to talk about women in the military. they are uniquely qualified to look at this and say how does it change things? we will have that and a group of republicans that come on from the outside. the virginia governor to tell us how they think they can fix the party from the outside. >> 9:00 a.m. eastern. we will be watching. t
to consider the nomination of senator hagel as secretary of defense. and according to the law, we're supposed to consider the president's nominees for the very important national labor relations board. but what the president did was make four appointments the day after he we went into our annual session. he made those -- we went into session on january 3, 2012. he made these appointments on january 4. the court said the senate was clearly in session, clearly in session, mr. president. and so if you disagree with the senate, if you're afraid you're about to nominate somebody who the senate won't like, well, then you -- you better get somebody the senate will approve or else you're not going to get that nominee. the president said, no, i'm going to do it my way so i'll just try to change this resource -- recess appointment and do it in a way that's more extreme than had ever been done before. i want to hasten to add that -- that there's no excuse here that if the president hadn't acted in this way, there -- the senate might have held up the nomination for too long. of course, the senate has tha
